Who We Are

One of my core-beliefs is that understanding your own story can be one of the bravest things we can do as individuals. As a counselor, I aspire to provide validation, compassion, and understanding, while also encouraging and challenging you. I aim to create a comfortable and safe therapeutic space and to form an open and genuine connection with my clients. Whether you are seeking support to work on self-growth, personal exploration, acceptance, or any other goal – we will collaborate to find a path that is best for you.

My approach to counseling is influenced by Narrative Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). By combining these approaches, we will work together to better understand the stories you tell yourself and others, as well as the patterns of your life, while making space to appreciate your strengths and resilience. When we have a better understanding of your unique worldview, I can more successfully create an individualized therapeutic space that is suited to your needs. I work with my clients to bring mindful-awareness and appreciation to both the physical bodies and the physical spaces that we occupy. This approach can help promote acceptance and self-compassion, which are foundational goals for many of my best-employed therapeutic techniques.
